Episode 93: Just a Girl

We're just girls in the world. The characters in this week's picks are women and girls facing stifling - and might just find empowerment too.

Also in this episode, we consider advice for young girls, the new normal of clothes, and our Olympic futures. Plus: an update on last week's horrific yuck pie.

Watch "Just a Girl," the No Doubt classic and inspiration for this week's theme.

Broads and Books is the funny and feminist book podcast you need in your life! Each week Amy and Erin choose a unique theme. Then we choose two fiction books, two other genre books (short story collections, memoir, non-fiction, true crime, poetry, etc.), and two pop culture picks based on that theme. We surprise each other with our picks, talk about why we like them, and give you unexpected recommendations for every reading taste. Along the way, we share embarrassing stories, pitch amazing-slash-crackpot business ideas, implicate ourselves in future crimes, check in on our Podcats, and so much more. Broads and Books is fresh, funny, thought-provoking, and basically the best time you'll have all week.
